In 2003, President Bush rode on a Segway, and fell off. That caused British reporter Piers Morgan and his paper, the Daily Mail, to write, “You’d have to be an idiot to fall off, wouldn’t you Mr President. If anyone can make a pig’s ear of riding a sophisticated, self-balancing machine like this, Dubya can.”
The wheels of justice grind slowly, it is said, but they grind exceedingly fine. Four years later, Morgan had his own first ride on a Segway…and fell off, cracking three ribs. Here’s the video:
The Daily Mail has the story.
It’s stretching a point, of course, but there is a certain analogy to the Democrats falling on their ribs when they finally took over the Congressional majority.
